ctdb and tombstones in persistent dbs

Hi folks,

I just noticed that we don't delete records in the *persistent* dbs, but instead
store tombstones (empty records). Is there any reason for this?

When using persistent dbs for persistent handles, I get lots of tombstones in
the persistent locking and smbXsrv_open_global dbs quite fast.
